    None of the victims were white, were they?

      who was in the midst of the crowd and was shot in the leg. From his appearance it must have been a minor wound, and he said one of the shooters was close behind him.

      However I agree with you that this will receive nothing more than brief national attention, completely free of the national outrage that followed other mass shootings in the past. IMHO the very fact that the media keeps laying on the coded words  that the victims were at a "Second Line" parade. The overuse of this "second line" phrase in the shooting headline tips the American public that this an event that involved a lot of "colored folks", so nothing much to get excited about here.....
